Neil Young & Java
Neil Young, one of my favorite musicians, has seriously embraced technology at the JavaOne conference today. He, along with Sun, announced that his entire music career will be put on Blu-ray disc.

The first release will contain years 1963-1972, and will be available on 10 Blu-ray Disc set available this fall from Reprise/Warner Bros. The content will include Young’s music, movies, videos, personal archives, memorabilia, photographs, letters, handwritten manuscripts and more.

You can preview some of this at Also, here is the Java page:
